Food Net Has "Sizzling camera work the most ambitious pornographer would envy" says Wall Street Journal

Alton, Ina, Rachael, Paula, and Guy all get positive mentions in yesterday's Wall Street Journal article on Food Network.

Highlighted is the aspect of escape that Food Network offers. Everywhere else we're hearing news of the stimulus package, the wars still raging, and whether Michelle Obama will go sleeveless or asymmetrical again. On Food Network, the only talk of pork "is the kind being fried, baked, char-broiled before your eyes," says the WSJ.

Here's to escapism!

Very interesting. C. S. Lewis had something to say about this exact thing.

"Now suppose you come to a country where you could fill a theatre by simply bringing a covered plate on to the stage and then slowly lifting the cover so as to let every one see, just before the lights went out, that it contained a mutton chop or a bit of bacon, would you not think that in that country something had gone wrong with the appetite for food?" - Mere Christianity

J, your "and Guy" gave me a giggle today. Thx for that.

Yeah, I saw that article too. "Mr. Brown -- the network's prime-time star if ever it had one -- can, furthermore, deliver instructions on coconut layer cake you're not likely to forget." Sign me up!

I'm totally into escapism on TV, either FN or movie channels. I don't think I've looked at broadcast TV in ages ....

Jacob: The mention of Paula Deen prompts me to ask, weren't you going to put a video up of the latest dirty joke that Paula told at this years SOBE fest?

Dorothy Rabinowitz is typically a whiney, cloistered, bore. She must have been paid for this pitiful apologia. Hey D, did you see the episode featuring tossed salad, Pittsburgh platters, and strawberry shortcake?
